ALL permaculture leaders/teachers who are building a public presence, need to do this.
Having a wikipedia listing -- is like having a business card.
It establishes a person's credentials, provides a photo, lists accomplishments.
This is not a vain thing to do... it is a protection... and is necessary when a person
is functioning in a public sphere.
I'm not personally sure about the wikipedia guidelines -- but an entry BY THE PERSON being bio'd
would hold much more weight than an unknown person sending an entry.
It would simplify the editing process if the leaders/teachers/certified instructors
created their own pages.
Yes, wikipedia does double-check their entries.
People new to the subject of permaculture will need to know these people's standing in the
community -- if these speakers are trusted, sought out for advice, and etc.

Q: How did you become the Duke of Permaculture?
A: I have a few hundred podcasts including about a dozen with Geoff Lawton. In one podcast I was trying to ask Geoff about an official stand in permaculture and I referred to him as the crown prince of permaculture. He said that if he was the crown prince then I would be the duke. This little bit of silly seems to have grown and grown. The best part is that Sepp Holzer gave me a giant wooden “medal” that says “The Duke” on it.
The title is fun, but thoroughly meaningless. I suspect it sticks mostly because of the comedy of a fat guy who wears overalls every day sporting such a fancy-pants title.
